Used sports equipment can be purchased online through used goods websites such as KleenNHardSprots.com, as well as through physical locations of used sporting goods such as Play It Again Sports. Local classified sites such as Craigslist and online auction sites such as eBay also sell used sporting goods.
The Play It Again Sports website allows users to search for nearby locations as well as browse a sampling of products. By clicking the Equipment tab on the site's main navigation bar, users can choose from several categories of sports, ranging from baseball and basketball to figure skating and surfing. This launches a catalog of certain used goods with a feature that lets users check the inventory of different stores to see if the item is in stock. Each item's listing also features suggested related items.
Craigslist allows users to post free listings to sell a variety of items including both used and new sporting goods. All major sales categories are divided into two groups, so users can see which postings were created by private owners and which were created by dealers. Craigslist does not require users to create accounts in order to post, so there are no ratings or review systems to judge the trustworthiness of a seller.
